PA, WV, VA, and NC - USA - [RESULTS]

Post by Leslie F. » Sun Jul 24, 2011 5:42 pm

I was traveling with my family from southwestern Pennsylvania to the coast of North Carolina yesterday, a 10-1/2 hour drive, so it was just me Sketchcrawling by myself. But since my husband was driving, I was able to complete five sketches along the way, one in each state we passed through. I guess this is probably the farthest I've ever "crawled" for one of these events! :o

It was REALLY hot, driving through NC -- 104 degrees!

I did these with pen and ink plus watercolor pencils. Not my best technique, but it was easy to use in the van while traveling. I would draw the ink sketch, color in the picture with my pencils, then use a water brush to blend the pencil lines into washes.

Until the next time ...

What a great idea! This is surely the most states covered in one Sketchcrawl! Beautiful work, Leslie.

We travelled thru the same states earlier this summer but way before sketchcrawl. Your color pencil and ink technique is great :thumbup:
